Loretto’s Enterprise Update

So far this session we have had many exciting enterprising activities going on across the whole school. Primary 4 and 6 have been working very closely together on promoting recycling in Loretto. They have worked with ‘Changeworks’, presented an assembly and organise the weekly collection and disposal of any recyclable materials. Primary 3 worked very hard over the Christmas term and organised an Art Exhibition, which was set up in our gym hall. Family and friends were then able to come along and purchase the pictures and all proceeds went towards the charities identified by the local churches of Musselburgh. Primary 6/7 and 7 were also very busy over the Christmas term making and selling Christmas cards and organising the shoe box appeal for the New Hope Trust.At present Primary 4 and 5 are preparing for our annual Burns Celebration. They will be dancing, singing and reciting poetry for members of our parish church – it’s always a very popular event.
